How does one go about creating an trade association?

I'm involved with a startup in a very new industry, and after talking with some of our competitors, there has been considerable interest in creating a trade association to help promote and standardize the industry, as well as to provide a forum for open information exchange. (We're not looking to create a cartel -- we genuinely want to find a way to make this industry thrive for everyone, not simply to pick a few key players and promote them over the others.)
I've tried searching Google for information on how to start a trade association, and came up short. Does anyone have any experience in this area?
